Barbara Nelson Remembers Barack Obama's Birth - The Strange Story
"The Buffalo News had a first person account of Obama's birth from one Barbara Nelson, who claims to have been Obama's 5th grade English teacher:
'I may be the only person left who specifically remembers his (Obama) birth. His parents are gone, his grandmother is gone, the obstetrician who delivered him is gone," said Nelson, referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98. Here's her story: Nelson was having dinner at the Outrigger Canoe Club on Waikiki Beach with Dr. West, the father of her college friend, Jo-Anne. Making conversation, Nelson turned to Dr. West and said: "'So, tell me something interesting that happened this week.'"
His response, said Nelson, was:
"Well, today, Stanley had a baby. Now thatâs something to write home about."
The new mother was Stanley (later referred to by her middle name of Ann) Dunham, and the baby was Barack Hussein Obama.
"I penned the name on a napkin, and I did write home about it," said Nelson, knowing that her father, Stanley A. Czurles, director of the Art Education Department at Buffalo State College, would be interested in the "Stanley" connection.
She also remembers Dr. West mentioning that the baby's father was the first black student at the University of Hawaii and how taken he was by the baby's name.
"I remember Dr. West saying 'Barack Hussein Obama, now that's a musical name,'" said Nelson, who grew up in Kenmore and went to Hawaii in 1959 to be in Jo-Anne's wedding party. When Nelson was offered a job as a newspaper reporter and photographer......"
Great story, huh? The only problem is that it's not true. From the Pearl Harbor Survivors Project: Rodney West, M. D.:
"...after practicing on the Big Island of Hawaii for a year, he returned to Honolulu and joined the Obstetrics and Gynecological department of the Straub Clinic. In December of l956, after delivering at least 5,OOO babies -- and other things, he retired from the practice of medicine."
Dr. West retired 5 years before the Immaculate Deception, and the Buffalo News has long since scrubbed the account. It's not even in the WayBackMachine.com, but on the left you can download a PDF copy...
This is an outstanding example of how gullible the Corporate Controlled Media are when anything positive was said about Barack Obama, how they were (are?) willing to publish sweet positive lies about him - but the same media studiously ignore any negative truths about him. Truths such as the ones that are referenced below...
